"Genius... Get Your Sh*t Together is more of Knight's special brand of anti-self-help self-help, peppered with profanity and witty pop culture references. But this time, she focuses on tactically organizing your life and...wading through the sea of everyday sh*t you have to do and finally prioritizing the things you actually want to do."―Vogue
"Knight addresses such topics as ways to manage anxiety, turning negative thinking positive and tackling self-sabotage with wry, chuckle-worthy humor and a practicality that will appeal to those who prefer to dip their toe in the transforming your life pond rather than jumping in naked."―Shelf Awareness
"[Get Your Sh*t Together] helped me stop psyching myself out and showed me how to break tasks up into small, manageable chunks... This one really helped set my tone for 2017. If you feel upside down and like you're being tossed around with no sense of direction, GYST is the slap in the face you need to wake up and realize, you can do this (with the action plan to actually do it)."―PopSugar
"Just what 2017 needs. Try it to make this year's resolutions stick."―Red
"Life-affirming... This no-holds-barred book has your back."―SheerLuxe
"A must-buy."―The Debrief --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

My first reaction was to yell "don't tell me what to do!" and clutch my boozy sippy cup to my chest. But the subtitle won me over. I *do* kinda wanna do stuff...
I read the first 100 pages before I got to my parents' house. That sh*t sounded easy. I have that sh*t together. I love my job, my emails are brief, I know how long it takes me to shower and shave (8-12 minutes, depending on my vertical cut-off point).
That night, I tore into the tough sh*t. And let me tell you, it is some tough sh*t. Money? Relationships? Achk. DONT MAKE ME DO THIS, SARAH. But I kept reading. Because, c'mon. You spent $20 dollars on this thing. It's just a book. Who raised you?
So I stayed up until about 3:00 am. Most of that spent reading, but at least an hour spent staring at the ceiling fan and thinking about page 160.
I finished the book on my flight back to my current "home" this morning. Between the time spent with my family and reading this book, this weekend has been life changing. I am going into the next few weeks knowing that I can get sh*t done, as long as I break it down into manageable pieces. Step, by step. Moving toward what's best for me, so I can finally get my sh*t together.

For example a section on mailing a parcel to Grandma in a timely fashion so you don't have to pay 32 dollars then randomly mentions Royal Mail and the post office. These British substitutions happens throughout what is otherwise a very American book. I found it really annoying and distracting - like a badly dubbed film.
It’s never easy to get started when the journey ahead seems long, daunting and sometimes impossible. Chunking is my big take away from this book and I shall be doing what I know already which is getting things done.
I like that this book calls every bluff you might attempt on the basis of a NFG approach to getting that stuff together.
And it's ridiculously straightforward in bringing things down to weaponising your phone, your wallet, and your keys in pursuit of simplifying your life (metaphorically speaking, naturally).
Keep this stuff coming!
Natürlich ist das eine hervorragende Idee, das eigene Leben zu entstressen, wenn man einen entsprechenden Beruf hat, der dies möglich macht und auch nicht unbedingt auf ein ständiges, gleichbleibendes Einkommen in einer gewissen Höhe angewiesen ist (die Autorin hat z.B. keine Kinder). Leider dürften aber die meisten Berufe eine Anwesenheit des Angestellten im Team voraussetzen (wie sollte z.B. eine Krankenschwester Home Office machen?) oder die Angestellten an bestimmte Orte binden (will man nicht sehr lange Pendelwege haben, die dann auch wieder stressig sind, ist eine relative Nähe zum Arbeitsplatz nötig).
Sicher gibt es auch Home Office Jobs abseits des Journalismus und/oder Auftragsschreibens, aber diese sind oft nicht gut bezahlt und können durchaus stressiger sein, z.B. als freier Mitarbeiter von zu Hause aus in einer Telefonhotline für Kunden, da man auch mit ungewöhnlichen Schichten rechnen muss, während der Free Lancer seine Zeit in der Regel selbst einteilen kann. Klar kann man dann z.B. einen Tag komplett durcharbeiten und sich dafür den nächsten frei halten.
Die sonstigen Ratschläge ähneln sehr dem deutschen Äquivalent "Am A... vorbei geht auch ein Weg", letztlich die alte Geschichte von "Mach dein Ding, solange du damit anderen nicht schadest. Kümmer dich nicht um das Geläster, wenn du dich nicht mehr dem Gruppendruck beugst."
I do think some parts of it so far are repetitive as in the same sentences used over and over again if this wasnt the case I probably would have finished the book by now but sometimes it makes you put the book down as you feel what you are reading you have already read a couple of chapters earlier.
